MOLINE COMMUNITY COLLEGE
In this aerial view of the downtown Moline and vicinity, Moline Community College may be seen in the
circle at the lower left.
The Wheel of Progress - - -
. . . in I960- 1961 has rolled through Moline Community College and touched
almost every phase of our college life. We have broadened our horizons in the curriculum,
the scholastic achievement, the faculty membership, the student enrollment, the campus
improvement, and the social activities. Inspired leadership, selfless devotion, and
willing cooperation of faculty and students have lubricated the wheels to aid in this progress.
The college offers a flexible program in three general areas: terminal, parallel, and
adult education. This year new courses were offered in the language arts, social studies,
mathematics, science, and physical education departments. The scope of the
adult education program, similarly broadened, shows new growth in many areas.
Attesting to the improvement of scholastic ratings are the results of the SCAT tests,
which showed a higher average over that of previous years.
Faculty membership has increased with six new teachers added to last year's staff of ten.
Supplementing the staff, also, is the new full time coordinator for adult education.
Full time student enrollment for 1 960-6 1 showed a thirty-three percent increase over
that of last year. Also verifying the forward approach of the college is the new parking lot
in the area formerly occupied by the Annex, which stood in the path of progress.
Students themselves have shown ever increasing loyalty and cooperation by their participation
in the many new coordinated social events initiated by various college clubs. Therefore,
we offer the following pages as a record of the growth of our college this year and present them
as a reminder along the path that MCC has helped us to grow intellectually, morally and socially.

The Dean Speaks
This has been the Crystal Year in the development of Moline Community
College. As each year is important in the development of a comparatively young
institution, we like to think that the fifteenth has contributed its share toward
advancement of our college.
This year has seen the expansion of our full time faculty, an expansion of
our curricula, and an increase in our student body. We've elected our first "Snow
Queen," put the first stickers on our cars, worn our first school sweatshirts, re-
ceived our first student identification cards, and established our first alumni
These and other "firsts" have made for us another important year. However,
their appearances, along with the general expansion of the college, are not so
important in and of themselves. Their importance lies in the fact that they are
indicative of the future, a bigger and brighter future than many would have
imagined in years gone by.
No institution stands still. With scientific, technological, and financial change,
institutions adapt themselves and go forward with the changes, or they die.
Strong leadership of previous administrators has helped Moline Community
College to the point where present and future administrators can concentrate
more on the needs of the future. The present strength and growth of our
college can be attributed to the concerted efforts of all its administrators since
Just what does the future hold for Moline Community College?
While it is impossible to guarantee or foresee all details, the following prog-
nostication seems justified:
1. Continued increase in full-time student body; the fall of 1965 will see
an enrollment of one thousand full-time students.
2. Continued expansion of our curricula, with more varied offerings in all
3. Growth of full-time faculty and staff; the fall of 1965 will see forty
full-time faculty members.
4. By 1965, there is a good chance that Moline Community College will
become an area college, serving a larger home district than the present
school district #40.
5. Continued growth in academic standards and regulations.
6. More parking problems.
But the brightest part of the future is the fact that more people can avail
themselves of a higher education, a situation not possible without Moline Com-
With a tremendous increase in the number of college age people within the
next decade, comes an additional responsibility to society to see that they are
provided with an opportunity to acquire an education beyond the high school
Many areas of our country will fail to provide such an opportunity for their
young people. Thankfully, the citizens in our community are willing to face-up
to this responsibility through the provision of Moline Community College.
One of the greatest assets of any community is the willingness of the present
generation to provide for the welfare of the next generation. We are indeed
blessed in this respect in our community.

Dr. Davis, Dr. Whale
Dr. Dwight M. Davis, Dr. Richard E. Whalen, and
the Board of Education plan for the development and
future of MCC. Working together, Dr. Davis and Dr.
Whalen determine the needs of the expanding college.
This year these needs made necessary an increase in tui-
tion, effective next fall. Well qualified to offer advice
on college affairs, Dr. Davis himself served as dean of
MCC from 1953 to 1955. He is thoroughly familiar with
the policies, problems, and potential of Moline's junior
college. Because his office is nearby in Allendale, it is
especially convenient for the superintendent to work
closely with Dr. Whalen in planning school policy.
All final decisions pertaining to MCC are made by the
Board of Education, which has under its jurisdiction the
twenty-five schools of the Moline Public Schools.
Comprised of several members each, two committees
deal with contrasting topics. The Business Committee is
occupied with finances; the Education Committee with
teaching staff and curriculum.
The Board of Education controls policies of the Moline Public Schools. Members are Stoddard Small, Richard Shrader, Calvin
Amsworth, Dr. Dwight Davis, President M. W. Faust, Assistant Superintendent and Secretary of the Board Melvin Reynolds
Henry Parsons, John Morgan, and Ralph Johnson.
ronfer in Directing Growth of MCC
Dr. Richard E. Whalen

University of Mississippi, M.A.

Dean of Moline Community College
Administrators of Moline Community College place
emphasis on both college credit and adult vocational
education courses. This policy is evidenced by the
creation of the position, director of technical, voca-
tional, and adult education. Filled by Mr. L. Everett
Belote, this job demands a full time faculty member.
More proof of interest in adult education may be found
in the fact that the technical program is being executed
at two locations. Now, vocational education courses
are made available not only at MCC, but also at the
new Moline Senior High School.
Because the administration feels that a full time
instructor offers definite advantages over a part-time
one, it has originated a full time teaching position
whenever possible. It must be remembered that four
full time teachers can replace sixteen part-time instruc-
tors; in fact, this exact substitution took place at the
beginning of the second semester. A total of six full
time teachers were added to the staff this year, bringing
the number to sixteen. In addition, faculty members
have been appointed to head most of the departments.
Carrying this same policy a step further, Dr. Whalen,
Dr. Davis, and the school board have added a full time
head coach to the faculty next year.
To offer a greater variety of college credit courses
at a junior college, the administration employs part-
time instructors. This year fifty-five teachers com-
prised MCC's part-time faculty.
The program at MCC this year has been expanded
in several areas: more full time instructors, new equip-
ment, and increased facilities represent growth in the
curricula. Employment in the college has reached a
record high. Including instructors, office assistants, and
cafeteria and custodial help, eighty-eight persons cur-
rently are working at the college.

At times Dr. Wells is the contact between the stu-
dents and the faculty as a group. When pupils wish
to organize a club, she performs this function. As an
advisor to the Student Council, she helps organize the
Council and aids them in their work.
At other times, Dr. Wells acts as an intermediary
between local business and the student body. She
attempts to match pupils wanting work with suitable
employers. This year alone Dr. Wells found positions
for more than one hundred students in business and

In addition to Registrar Mrs. Dorothy Kramer, the
office staff consists of Mrs. Phyllis Peterson, Mrs. Mary
Riordan, Mrs. Wanda Lambert, and Mrs. Jean Carlson.
During the first semester, Mrs. Janette Ketelsen and
Mrs. Joanna Greenwood were employed.
Mrs. Phyllis Peterson administers the school insur-
ance program at MCC, as well as helping with tran-
scripts. Typing office records is another duty she has
performed during her four years at MCC.
Secretary to Mr. L. Everett Belote, Mrs. Mary
Riordan, who also helps with typing, began her work
in the college office in November. In addition to her
secretarial duties Mrs. Riordan duplicates examinations
Mrs. Wanda Lambert succeeded Mrs. Janette Ketel-
sen as the registrar's assistant. When the end of the
semester arrives and grades must be recorded, Mrs.
Lambert takes this responsibility. She also handles
Replacing Mrs. Joanna Greenwood in the bookroom
during the second semester is Mrs. Jean Carlson. Head-
ing Mrs. Carlson's duties are ordering books, mailing
out class schedules, and taking charge of bookkeeping
and banking for the college.
The dispensing of information is one of the pri-
mary services of the office staff. Vendors of the com-
modity are Mrs. Phyllis Peterson, who answers queries
by telephone, and Mrs. Mary Riordan at the informa-
tion desk. What type of questions are asked? Prospec-
tive students want to know which courses are offered,
the entry requirements for these courses, and their col-
lege credit hours. Current students call to find out
whether a certain class will be held, or whether an
instructor has revealed the semester's grades. These
are but a few of the many inquiries which face the
secretaries each day.

Music Appreciation accomplishes a similar purpose
in another field, enabling classes to enjoy classical
and modern compositions. To students who pass the

Education and Psychology
"Education courses emphasize the growth and de-
velopment of schools, and point out modern methods
of teaching," states Dr. Hilda Wells. Subjects with
these objectives are The American Public School
(Education 100) and the methods courses dealing
with the various fields of study.
Psychology stresses the importance of understand-
ing human behavior. The Introduction to Psychology
precedes Applied Psychology, the latter dealing with
the practical aspects and the many uses of psychology.
Primarily for teachers, Educational Psychology con-
cerns the process of learning.
Available to education majors is the student obser-
vation program at MCC. Here Bill Blick, a par-
ticipant in the program, clarifies an assignment for
sixth graders at Grant School.

Cube roots and logarithm tables are familiar items
to MCC math majors, who devote a large share of
their time to specialized courses. Among these sub-
jects are College Algebra, Plane Trigonometry, Ana-
lytic Geometry, Integral Calculus, and Strength of
Materials. Not only was Room 309 the scene of Mr.
Fiedler's Slide Rule class second semester, but also
was the meeting place of his College Arithmetic
group. Industrial Math, Intermediate Algebra, and
College Arithmetic were also taught this year.
Mr. Leigh Fiedler answers Bill Conover's question

quist of Doug Peterson and Dan Louden, students taking
History of Western Civilization.
To meet the ever increasing need of stu-
dents to learn about the problems of the
world in which they live, the social studies
department each year adds new courses or
teachers or both.
This year Anthropology was added to the
many courses offered. This subject concerns
the theories of human development and the
racial variability of primitive society.
Offering of courses in geography, history,
and sociology, the social studies department
stresses world problems and cultural develop-
ment. Both the Elements of Geography,
which deals with the physical makeup of
the world and planetary relation; and Eco-
nomic Geography, the study of industrial de-
velopment and world trade, are offered.
In history, courses such as the History of
Western Civilization, English, American, po-
litical science and current problems are avail-
able. In addition to Principles of Sociology,
a course in personality is offered.
Two full time instructors were added to the science
department this year, bringing the total to four. Zo-
ology was extended to a full year course, the second
semester dealing primarily with the vertebrate forms
of animal life. Also included in the biological science
division were Microbiology and Physiology, which
were taught for nurses. Science majors found many
chemistry and physics classes are offered in the phys-
ical science category.

Library Continues To Expand
This year the library not only added new
books but also such other facilities as records
and language tapes.
Within three years, more than three thou-
sand circulating books have been accumulated.
Under the National Defense Education Act,
the library gained over one thousand dollars
worth of books this year alone. To encourage
the addition of new courses and to enrich the
curriculum, the government agrees to pay
one-half of the cost of each volume added, as
well as one-half of the cost of new equipment.
Books added this year through this program
were primarily in the areas of French, Ger-
man, Russian, Spanish, and anthropology.
The collection of 250 records includes sev-
eral spoken foreign language albums, in addi-
tion to recordings for the music appreciation
and English classes. A tape recorder with
earphones and language tapes was offered to
students for their use during second semester.
Mrs. Viola Theorell, librarian, together
with the faculty, selects books to be purchased
for the library. Library assistants first se-

MCC Offers Students Many Services
Joe Brady is convinced of the importance of having
school insurance by Mr. Ray Smith, head of the student
insurance program for the Moline Public Schools. Mrs.
Phyllis Peterson, who handles the insurance at MCC,
will make out the forms.
Mrs. Jean Carlson, who is in charge of the bookroom, ac-
cepts an English 101 text from Richard Parrish. Filling
students' orders for books is especially time-consuming at
the beginning of a new semester.
Student Council Initiates New Activities;
Highlighting Student Council activities this year were two
innovations — a statewide conference and a fall semester semi-
formal dance. Dr. Hilda Wells, sponsor of Student Council,
assisted the group in planning these and other events of the
Comprising this year's Student Council were Bil Blick, soph-
omore, president; Dan Louden, freshman, secretary-treasurer;
Paul Ross, sophomore representative; Dave Phelps and Bill Pekos,
freshman representatives. These students served as a planning
committee during both semesters.
Bill Pekos headed the Council's first major project of the
year — the publication of the student-faculty directory, a service
offered for the second year.
After receipts had paid for the soft drink machines in the
basement lounge, the Student Council purchased a new water
cooler for the ground floor, another main Council project.
Sponsored by the Student Council were two principal social
events of the school year: the Halloween dance and the Snow
Swirl. Queen Sharon Brink reigned over the Snow Swirl, the
first fall semester semi-formal dance, which will become an annual
affair. Attendants were Sue Chapman, Pam O'Klock, Linda Alm-
quist and Joan Buffalo.

To the first Student Council conference
sponsored here by the MCC group on April
14, all the junior college council members
in the state were invited. Fifty-four repre-
sentatives came from Belleville, Canton,
Joliet, Elgin and Morton. MCC Student
Council members led discussions on prob-
lems confronting junior colleges. The vis-
itors exchanged views with MCC Council
members about college life activities.
Chatting around the table at the Snow Swirl are Stephanie
Folk, Roger Johnson, Jerry Ramsdale and Shirley Lear.
Commerce Club Tours Chicago Board of Trade
Planning activities for the fall semester of the Commerce Club
are newly elected officers, Bob Mueller (foreground), president;
Shirley Lear, secretary-treasurer; and Bill Pekos, vice president.
Touring the Chicago Board of Trade and the Fed-
eral Reserve Bank highlighted the activities of the
Commerce Club this year. Leaving by bus at 7:15
a. m. May 16, the members spent the day visiting
these financial centers in Chicago.
Organized originally to foster friendly relation-
ships between the club members and the business-
men of the community, the group has now enlarged
its sphere to include social as well as educational
activities. First semester social events included a
hayrack ride last fall and a student-faculty holiday
tea served in the student study lounge after the
Christmas assembly program.

Included in the programs were a demonstration and
lecture by Mr. Fred Wiedeman, from the Bell Tele-
phone Company, on "Micro Wave Magic," and a
physics lecture by Dr. Edwin Vaughan, chairman of
the physics department at St. Ambrose College. The
space age was represented in a discussion on "Rockets
and Missiles" by Mr. Floyd Goar, physics instructor
at Moline High School; an astronomy lecture by Mel
Peterson, professor of chemistry at Augustana; and
a demonstration on liquid oxygen by Donald Rouser
from the Bendix Corporation in Davenport.
A field trip to the University of Chicago's science
department gave variety to the club's activities. Here
the members learned what to expect from science in
the future. Members displayed their hobbies at a
student home talent night in March. Hobbyists con-
tributing to this program were Jeff McFadyen with
his camera; Pat LaCrosse, his telescope; and Bil Blick,
his ham radio outfit.
The purpose of the organization is to promote in-
terest in science. All students interested in this field
were invited to join the club, which is sponsored by
Mr. Carl Ekblad, chemistry and physics instructor at
Blackouts" Variety Show
Versatility and talent abounded in the auditorium November 10
when Te-Moc presented its annual variety show, which this year
was called "Blackouts."
The twelve-act presentation was emceed by stolid-faced John
Timson, whose monologue on Kruschev's landing in the United
States had the audience wiping away tears of laughter.
Assisted by Mr. Richard Keeley, director, the club members
wrote most of the scripts for the show and also enacted the parts.
It was evident that they enjoyed doing the show as much as the
audience enjoyed watching it.

Te-Moc Club, sponsored by Mr. Richard Keeley, this year elected
these officers: Paul Ross, president; Roger Adolphson, vice-president;
Ann Mattison, secretary; and Gary Heitman, business manager.
Club members, who delight in presenting the unusual and the
original, sponsored Te-Moxie, a costume dance and three original
skits, the second semester.
Not satisfied with commonplace entertainment, they added to
the enjoyment of their guests by providing prizes for the most
original costumes. Winning the prizes for costumes were Barbara
Meyers and Hygie Reynolds.
"Why is Wednesday Green" written by Riley Anderson, "Red
Satin Straight Jacket" by Pam O'Klock, and a satire by Paul Ross
were enacted by members of the club.

Spring Play, 'Romanoff and Juliet/'
Spirited chuckles and roaring laughter was the reaction
of the audience to Ustinov's Romano]] and Juliet presented
in the auditorium April 21. The satirical comedy con-
cerned the diplomatic tomfooleries between the United
States and the smallest country in Europe.
Pam O'Klock, radiant as Juliet, used her feminine wiles
to overcome the difficulties by falling in love with a com-
munist, Romanoff, enacted by Riley Anderson.
Paul Ross as The General, the part played by Ustinov
in the original play, planned the collusion to bring the
couple together. Through excellent costuming, comic
dialogue and convincing acting, Paul and his cohorts,
Frank Olson and Thomas Genn as the soldiers, kept
laughter rippling through the auditorium.
Dave Phelps as the blustery American ambassador and
father of Juliet roared through his scenes berating
his wife for her acquiesence to the affair and dog-
matically denouncing Freddie, played by Bil Blick,
for his reticence in proposing to Juliet. The consol-
ing and conciliating wife was enacted by Dorothy
The Russian contingent of the triangle starred
Larry Jagnow as the ambassador; Sandra Schultz, his
wife; Gary Heitman as the spy; and Alicia Holmes
as Junior Captain Marfa Zlotochienko, a sloop cap-
tain with whom Freddie falls in love.
The doddering, deaf Archbishop, who through
the connivance of the general marries Romanoff and
Juliet, was expertly portrayed by Michael Kinney,
whose experience in Shakespearean drama helped
him to give authenticity to the role.
Tom Bump and Dennis Frey as Death and the
Saint added comedy through their mechanical move-
ments and erratic antics in the clock tower.
Production techniques were ably handled by Jeff
MacFayden, assisted by Gary Millen and Edmund
The three stage effects and settings were planned
and supervised by Director, Richard Keeley and were
constructed by Riley Anderson, Ray Hamilton, Bill
Montgomery, Valerie Olson, and Hygie Reynolds.
Student director was Robert Van Raes; Bonnie

College Band Is Newest Music Group
Director of College Band
"One and two and," counted Mr. Louis Dilulio, director of the college band
as he started the newly organized MCC group, which initiated their first public
performance at the Te-Moc Variety Show last November.
In this new band were these members: four saxophone players — Jack Es-
linger, Dennis Fish, Jerry Barns and Dick Parrish; two clarinet players —
Dennis Fish and Jack Eslinger; three trumpet players — Gary Miller, Edwin
Abrahanson and Don Smith; a tuba player — Larry Stille; drums — Ted De
Splinter. Accompanist for the group was Nancy Shattuck. The group played
this year primarily as a dance band.
Included in the band's activities were the providing of music at several basket-
ball games and at the variety show. Next year the group plans to expand their
Several members of the group have varied musical interests. Don Smith plays
lead trumpet with the college band and The Collegiates, a dance band. He also
plays with the Arsenal band and sings with the Arsenal chorus. Dennis Fish
plays with the Vampers' Combo and is first saxophone in the Moline High
Another member of The Collegiates is Jerry Barns. Leader of The Collegiates
is Jack Eslinger, a teacher at a local music studio and member of the Arsenal
band. He played two years with the U. S. Air Force Military Band and one
year in the Orlando Civic Orchestra. Larry Fosbinder, formerly a member of
The Collegiates, now plays professionally with the Blue Notes.
Mr. Dilulio's plans for the future include forming a concert band, which
will branch out into ensembles and dance band groups.

Choir Adds Spring Concert to Performances
Against a background depicting the nativity, the choir
dressed in black robes with green surplices sang for the
student Christmas assembly.
"Winter Wonderland," "What Child Is This?" and
"O Holy Night" were three of the selections included
on the program.
On May 25 at 8 p. m. the choir, dressed in old
English costumes presented a program of madrigals and
folksongs in the auditorium. In June they provided the
vocal music for commencement exercises. They also
sang at the Methodist Conference and at Prospect Park to
open the summer activities of the Quad-City Music Guild.
Choir members met every Thursday evening rehearsing
under the direction of Dr. Frederick Swanson. "Choir
serves as a survey of music for intimate groups, with atten-
tion to the personal and social aspects of group singing,"
explained Dr. Swanson.

Foreign Language Clubs Provide Interest
"Bon soir, mes eleves" were the familiar words
of Madame Jessie Roby, instructor, that greeted the
French class every Monday and Wednesday evenings.
In order to give the language a practical application,
a club was formed and French conversation practiced
at the social gatherings. At a pot-luck supper held
in November, French cuisine was featured with such
dishes as chemin de fer, montagne de fruit and French
"Le Bourgeois Gentilhomme," a French comedy
film from a play by Moliere, sponsored by the
humanities department of Augustana College, was
viewed by the members of the club in April.
Serving as officers for the year were Mademoiselle

To further their ability in conversational German,
the class members organized the Heidelberg Club,
named for Heidelberg, Germany, a famous college
town. Chief among their activities was the singing
of German songs. They displayed their vocal skills
at the Recognition Dinner by entertaining the guests
with their singing. Renditions of "Du, Du Liezst
Mir Im Herzen" and "Die Lorelei" were loudly ap-
plauded by the guests.
Officers elected for the spring semester were Herr
Gary Heitman, president; Fraulein Shirley Lear, vice-
president; Fraulein Joyce DeTombe, secretary; and
Herr Ron Marlier, treasurer.
"I prefer northern United States."
"I rate MCC an excellent college."
"I like the tri-cities' area."
"I think MCC offers a fine opportunity for students."
These opinions were expressed by the foreign students
attending our college. Hernando Cuenca, of Buenaventura,
Colombia, a member of this year's graduating class, previously
attended the University of Bogota. He hopes to continue his
education in a senior college.
Raul Echeverri, born in Medellin, Colombia, attended the
Pontificia Bolvariana University. After completing two years
of college, he plans to attend a university and then return
to his home in South America.
Vahidedin Hoda, a citizen of Tabriz, Iran, attended A. & M.
College in Oklahoma as a freshman. He is working toward his
master's degree in engineering after which he will prepare
himself for government work in Iran.

Because of this inexperience, the staff was
pleased when ACP, the Associated Collegiate

The Alumni Association
With Allen Larsen '60 as chairman, interested alumni dis-
cussed plans last April for organizing an MCC Alumni As-
sociation. At a meeting and coffee hour held May 27 in the
student lounge of MCC, the following officers were elected:
Allen F. Larsen, president; Don Wilson, vice-president; Rob-
ert Walker, treasurer; Dorothy E. Hancock, secretary; and
Ruth F. McHenry, Fred Timmerman, and David W. Stone,
members of the executive committee.
Members of the Alumni Association were invited to the
Spring Swirl graduation dance held at the Sky-Hi Ballroom
of the LeClaire Hotel May 27.
Objectives of the organization are to increase the stature of
the college through public relations, to encourage student en-
rollment, to provide a medium of contact between graduates,
and to assist students, graduates and the college. Several proj-
ects have been planned, including a program of gift book
donations to the library, a public relations and recruitment
program, and an alumni scholarship.
New officers and executive committee members are

Cheerleaders Spirit MCC To Victory
At every home game, Molinc Community College was fortunate to have
the smiling faces and enthusiasm of cheerleaders.
Linda Almquist, Shirley Lear, Janet Pearson, and Linda Tompkins were
selected by Dr. Hilda Wells at the beginning of the fall semester. Debbie
Anderson substituted for Janet, who was unable to continue midway in the
season due to illness.
The girls, who appeared in sweaters and skirts of black with a gold
megaphone, which contained the word "Comets," emblazoned across the
front of the sweaters, aroused school spirit. Also, the pepsters taught will-
ing students new cheers which were employed at every home game.

Cagers End Season With 15-7 Record
Ending a successful season, the Comets finished with one of
the better records displayed by an MCC basketball squad. Coach
Tom Kienle, who completed his eighth year this season as basket-
ball coach, aided the MCCers in compiling a 15-7 overall mark.
The Comets were spearheaded by these returning lettermen:
Ray Hamilton, Dick Martel, Bob Mueller, Dan O'Brien, Bob
Oritz, and Ron Swanson; freshmen, Dennis Frey, Dan Hull,
Melvin McLaughlin, Rich Van DeVoorde, Mernice Vandel, and
Jim Weber; and sophomores, Jim Hooven and Dan Lingafelter,
aided the squad's winning cause.
Hosting Clinton Junior College in the first game of the year,
the Kienlemen rolled to an impressive 85-67 triumph. Keokuk's
Komcts were MCC's next victim, as Ray Hamilton sparked his
mates to a 92-63 rout. After sneaking past Morton J. C, 71-70,
the Comets extended their winning pace to seven games with
victories over Thornton, 78-70; Wilson, 79-74; Wright, 79-76;
and Burlington, 74-71.

second time, but Muscatine proved to be a stumbling
block again. Kienle's warriors dropped a 76-65 de-
cision to the MVJCC champions.
Wharton Field House was the scene of another
Comet triumph, as MCC handed Crane's Huskies an
85-69 defeat. Bradley's always powerful freshmen
entertained MCC in an annual affair, and the little
Braves, led by their giant 6-9 center, Joe Strawdar,
pounded the smaller Moline club, 81-54.
MCC got back on the victory trail by toppling the
century mark for the third time when the Comets
out ran their hosts, La Grange, 110-94. Rich Van

Keeping stride in the race for the Illinois loop
title, MCC downed a new entry to the conference,
Bloom, 80-69. By defeating La Salle, 91-81, the
locals tied Joliet for the IJCC crown. Dan Hull
paced the win with 32 tallies.
Coach Kienle's cagers competed in the state tourney,
and, after receiving a bye for the first tilt, the Comets
won their next play-off game. MCC rang up an 88-65
win over Morton. Early in the clash, Morton main-
tained a 10-6 lead, but the Kienlemen scored 33
straight points to take a commanding lead. However,
Wilson's run, shoot, and run offense eliminated Mo-
line from the tournament, 96-78.
Moline Community College terminated the basket-
ball season with a first place finish in the IJCC and
a second place mark in the Valley conference. Ray
Hamilton led the Comet scoring attack with a 20-
point per game average over the entire year. Dan
O'Brien and Bob Mueller left the team after the
fall semester; graduating this spring were Ray Ham-
ilton, Dick Martel, Bob Ortiz, and Ron Swanson.

a 20-point per game average. Ray finished the 1959-60 cam-
paign with nearly an identical average. Dick Martel and Bob
Ortiz were the playmakers for the Comets. Their constant hustle
and winning spirit enabled the squad to compile its splendid
MCC's 6 foot 5 inch pivot man, Dan Hull, developed into
a fine center. Dan lacked actual game experience before attend-
ing Moline Community College, but near the end of the season
he contributed greatly to the team effort.
Guard Rich Van DeVoorde, a product of Geneseo's basket-
ball team, secured his position early in the 1960-'6l season. He
played it well and ended close behind Hamilton for individual

For the first time in its history, MCC offered track in the
sports program. Under the direction of Mr. Gordon Taylor,
who coached track at John Deere Junior High for seven
years before coming here, the newly formed track squad
participated in four meets.
In the first meet, the MCC sprinters competed with the
St. Ambrose varsity. The "Bees" garnered 80 points to
MCC's 45. Splitting a pair of dual meets, the cindermen
rolled the Augustana freshman-sophomore squad, 83-39,
but lost to Monmouth, 71-60. In the second meeting with
St. Ambrose, the "Bees" overcame an early Comet lead to
take an 89-52 decision.
In individual honors Dave Jackson, the dash and hurdles,
and Ron Swanson, the high jump and hurdles, captured Comet
victories in all four meets; Doug Peterson captured firsts
in the discus in two meets; and Bob Hall, the high jump and
pole vault; and Al Schnoebelen, the dash, both took firsts
in one meet.
Earning a letter this year were Bob Hall, Dave Jackson,
Dave Johnson, Dick Lange, Doug Peterson, Bob Pyevich,
Al Schnoebelen, Ron Sims, Bob Smith, and Ron Swanson.
High-point man for the season was Dave Jackson. Run-
ning in the 220-yard low hurdles and the 100-yard dash,
Dave compiled 84 points.
MCC Adds Track To Sports Program
Members of Moline Community College's track squad are Front Row, Doug Peterson, Al Schnoebelen, Bud Petit, Dick Holt-
man, Dave Johnson, and Coach Gordon Taylor; Top Row, Bill Coopman, ' Bill Lindell, Steve Pyevich, and Bob Lindell.
Swanson One Of Nation's Best Jumpers
Sophomore Ron Swanson leaped into stardom this
season in competition with other college track squads.
Before Ron enrolled at the college in 1959, he had
tied for the high school high jump of Illinois, and had
served in the Marine Corps. This spring he was able to
compete in his favorite sport, track, since it was offered
this year at MCC.
He resumed competitive high jumping this spring to
become the "jumpingest" human ever to inhabit the Quad-
Cities, according to record books.
Competing at the Elmhurst Relays, Ron reached his
personal high when he soared across the bar at 6 feet
6% inches, a new record for the Relays. He barely
missed at 6-9, his goal.
This spring, Ron participated at Elmhurst, the Mon-
mouth Relays, and the State Inter-Collegiate meet at
Bradley University. He bettered a record 6 feet 6 inches
in all those meets.
Ron has never been defeated while competing with
Moline Community College, and this is amazing since
his schedule consisted of work, classes at college, and
high jumping. In fact, this high jumper usually got
off work Saturdays at 7:30 a.m., and then drove as
much as 160 miles to the meet.
Although he has never cleared the 6-9 mark, Ron
vows, "I'm going to keep trying, and I'm going to make
it some day."

Golfers Compete Against St. Ambrose
In their second year of organization the golf team
included one returning letterman and two members
who participated in the sport in high school. Craig
Gober, the returning letterman from last year's squad,
also played for three years on the Moline High School
A graduate of Rock Island High School, Dan
Stevenson was a player on that school's team; Jim
Soucinek, the other experienced linksman, was a mem-
ber of the United Township High school team last
year. Mr. Van White, head of the Business Education
department, served as coach this year.
Coach White scheduled several meets this spring,
but only the meet with St. Ambrose materialized. The
MCC golfers were defeated in this interscholastic
affair held on May 9 at the Indian Bluff Golf Course.
Participating in the dual meet in addition to Craig,
Dan, and Jim were Dennis Frey, Frank Olson, and
John Timson. Craig was medalist. Rounding out
the team were Bill Bestor, Larry Jagnow, and Steve
Coach White received an invitation to send the
team to the National Junior College Golf Tourna-
ment in Odessa, Texas. The invitation could not be
accepted since none of the golfers were able to attend.
Coach White also planned to send the golfers to the
Muscatine Play Day, but a mix-up in dates prevented
the MCC golfers from attending.
Letter winners were Craig, Frank, Jim, Dan, and
John Timson. They received their awards at the

Evening Swimming, Golf Classes Grow
:s::^: ::: ■
In the evening golf classes, offered for credit, twenty-eight stu-
dents enrolled in the spring semester. Mr. Hugo Birkhahn was
again the instructor.
Members of the classes perfected their techniques during the
class sessions and at home. After several months of practice, they
put to use their newly acquired skills by traveling to the Blackhawk
Driving Range to practice. Then on May 18 they went to the
Indian Bluff Golf Course to play a complete game. Although the
students did not par the course, the actual experience of playing
eighteen holes aided them greatly.

Swimming was again offered this
year as a night physical education
class. Twenty-one signed up for that
activity. Instructing the course was
Miss Ruby Maurer and Mr. L. D.
Meeting on Monday nights, the
class was formed into two groups
according to their swimming skills.
One group was made up of begin-
ners; the other, of those who knew
how to swim fairly well.
Each session the students learned
new strokes and practiced them. In-
cluded among the strokes they learned
were the backstroke, butterfly, breast
stroke, crawl, and the dog paddle.

while Bill Hull strolls along nearby.
Terminating its second year at Moline Community
College, the intramural program, headed by Larry Jag-
now, president, included both basketball and volleyball.
A seven-game season and an eight-team tournament
comprised the basketball activity. Regular season play
was won by Joe Donovan's club; the tourney was won
by the team of which Curt Carlson, Dan Roman, Ron
Shook, Ron Sims, and Charles Sorenson were members.
The championship squad garnered the play-off crown
by defeating Jerry Lancaster's crew in a sudden-death
The teams which participated in the tournament were
captained by Joe Donovan, Jim Hyldahl, Larry Jagnow,
Jerry Lancaster, Don Mason, Dave O'Bcrt, Charles Sor-
enson, and Bob Thompson.
By virtue of defeating Donovan and Jagnow, the
championship club entered the finals. Lancaster's second
place crew obtained victories over Hyldahl and Thomp-
son in order to compete for the crown.
Scoring leader for the entire season was Dennis Fulk
with a 27-points per game average.
Although basketball dominated I-M activities, volley-
ball was also played. The Women's Recreation Associa-
tion combined forces with the intramural program so
that both men and women could participate in the sport.
Women Organize WRA
The Women's Recreation Association officers pose for picture
taking: Joyce Stange, secretary; Joan Buffalo, president; and

Social recreation was one of the pur-
poses for the organizing of the Women's
Recreation Association. In addition to
business meetings and sports, the twenty-
four members sponsored a swimming
party and a picnic.
Joan Buffalo was elected president for
the spring semester; Anne Mattison, vice-
president; and Joyce Stange, secretary.
The faculty sponsor was Mrs. Phyllis
Firlus. Meetings were held every other
Tuesday in the college gymnasium at
8 p. m.
Members of the WRA engaged in
such sports as basketball, volleyball, bowl-
ing, badminton, swimming, and table
On the membership committee were

Firlus Instructs New Social Dance Class
Social dance was initiated into the school curric-
ulum the spring semester with Mrs. Phyllis Firlus as
the instructor. Seventeen boys and ten girls made up
the new class, which met twice a week in the college
Things started at a lively pace for the new stu-
dents. Songs such as "Shake, Rattle, and Roll" filled
the air as dancers learned the jitterbug. Easing their
aching muscles in the ensuing weeks, the students
practiced waltzing to such old favorites as "Always,"
"Tenderly," and "Alice Blue Gown." Mrs Firlus
then taught her students the foxtrot, tango, and cha-
cha. The rhumba, polka, and somba were also in-
Three good reasons were given by Mrs. Firlus as
the purposes of a social dance class: it provides a
course in physical education suitable to people of all
ages; it is a good social function; and it is the best
exercise for college students.
Techniques the co-eds learned in the social dance class organized this semester are exhibited at this all school "swirl." The
particular dance the students are keeping time to is the "jitterbug."

MCC Offers Courses to Student Nurses
Enrollment of women students is increased every
year by the addition of first year student nurses. In
conjunction with the Moline Public Hospital, MCC
offers the nurses courses in sociology, psychology, and
the physical and biological sciences.
The student nurses have a busy schedule. They re-
ceive twenty hours of credit for their work which is
applied toward their R. N. degree or transferred to
a four-year college to satisfy requirements for a B. A.
This year classes in biological science formerly taught
at the hospital by an MCC instructor have been trans-
ferred to the college. Instructors are Dr. Hilda Wells,
Mr. Carl Ekblad, and Mr. Gordon Taylor.
Not only do the nurses comply with the rigors
of study, they also participate in the social and theat-
rical events here such as Te-Moc and the dances.
Sharon Brink, one of the nurses, was elected Snow
Queen this year. She reigned at the Snow Swirl. In
turn they invite the MCC men to their "coke" parties.

Several times a week students from the Palmer
School of Chiropractics drive from Davenport to at-
tend classes here in biology, chemistry, and physics.
Through a joint agreement in 1952 between the
schools, MCC as an accredited college arranged classes
to aid students from several states to meet the re-
quirements of their respective examining boards.
This year seventeen students, all from Pennsylvania,
are enrolled in the courses. Their backgrounds, ages,
and earnest ambitions make this a unique group.
Among them can be found a former taxidermist, a
shoe factory worker, a pencil maker, and a branch
manager for a finance company. Many also have just
graduated from high school.
Mrs. Phyllis Firlus and Mr. Carl Ekblad, instruc-
tors in the science department, teach the classes at-

To serve the community to the fullest, Moline
Community College has a triple role: it offers uni-
versity parallel courses; it offers courses on a terminal
basis for the student who does not plan to transfer
his credits to a senior college or university for appli-
cation toward a bachelor's degree; it offers courses on
a non-credit basis to those who desire to enrich their
background, pursue a hobby, prepare for a position
in business or industry, or to qualify for advance-
ment in his present position.
This year Mr. Belote laid the ground work for
the expansion of the program for the next school
year. After many conferences with local and state
officials and with Mr. Lester F. Vines of East Mo-
line, a joint program in technical and vocational courses
by Moline Community College and the East Moline
Technical Institute will be offered next year. This
spring Mr. Belote edited a bulletin describing the pur-

In the Adult Education program Miss Adams selects
the courses to be offered each semester, chooses the
teachers for the various classes, and determines the time
these classes will be held.
Miss Adams also teaches a class in parent education
in co-operation with the Parent-Teacher Association in
the elementary and junior high schools.

Millinery has become very popular in Adult
Education at Moline Community College this
year. These classes give women the opportunity
to express their ideas of style in hats.
Mrs. Melba Bernine of Chicago comes to
Moline every week in order to teach the mil-
linery classes. This year the class sessions have
been extended to three hours in length to give
additional time to planning and creation.
There are no set patterns of study applied
in these classes. "Melba" provides the profes-
sional help that enables the women to produce
Mrs. Marvin Fagerli tries on the hat which she designed in the
millinery class during the Christmas season.
Mrs. Annette Bonnell, the instructor, is advising two students on the
techniques of tailoring and giving additional ideas upon selection of
pattern and fabric in relation to color and texture.
Tailoring is designed for the women who
have had a great deal of experience in sew-
ing. The students usually direct their inter-
est toward a project such as a coat or suit
for which skill and experience is required.
Mrs. Bonnell instructs this class and makes
suggestions to the students about careful se-
lection of project and fabric to be used.
The Dressmaking Technique classes pro-
vide a firm foundation for the students in-
terested in Tailoring, a more advanced class.
Three Courses Available in Dressmaking
Mrs. Helen McMinn, instructor, is illustrating the
necessary steps to be taken in order to produce a
neatly completed garment.
Mrs. Ruby Sarver, instructor in Dressmaking
Techniques at MCC since 1951, explains to a
student the correct method of using patterns.
Dressmaking Techniques I, II, and III are
taught by Mrs. Ruby Sarver and Mrs. Helen
McMinn. In these classes professional tech-
niques are applied to home sewing. Each
step is first demonstrated by the instructor;
then the student applies these principles to
her own garment.
These classes appeal to women of all ages
and their projects vary with particular inter-
ests. Each student is given personal help
and attention on her project.
Three students are carefully measuring the length of the skirt to insure
proper fitting of the garment.
Crafts Class Offers Work in Creative Arts
Three class- members display the
projects they completed in the
Christmas Workshop Class.
Household Crafts and Christmas Work-
shop are taught by Mrs. Betty Gordon. House-
hold Crafts is organized to give lessons in the
making of articles for use in and about the
home. It is taught by the demonstration
method, and projects are selected to meet the
times and interests of the students. Projects
include knitting, weaving, embroidering, ap-
plique, crocheting, tatting and rug making.
Christmas Workshop is a ten-week course
offered to teach new ideas in Christmas gifts.
Projects this year included new ideas in dec-
orating the dining table, the rooms during
the holiday season, the wrapping of Christ-
mas packages, and the decorating of orna-
ments and candles.
The number of students in these classes
is limited in order that each student will be
given individual attention.
Mrs. Gordon, instructor, is demonstrating
to one of her students the use of the
loom on which purses, knitting bags, rugs,
and place mats can be woven.

Home Decoration classes provide basic in-
formation on color, design, and decorating
principles to help show how these principles
aid in improving the appearance of the home.
Besides including specific aspects of room
arrangement, individual problems are dis-
cussed and field trips are taken.
